♥ Simon Says... Embossing! ♥

That is this week's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! Embossing! This week the DT got to play with Belles and Whistles stamps. I must confess I never used them before. But I was very impressed with them. They stamp very crisp and clean and they have the cutest images too.
I used the Belles and Whistles stamp  called "Watering" on my card. I colored it in with some Copics and then used my Versamarker embossing marker on the little bows in her hair, the bow on her hat and the flowers and then added some embossing powders by Ranger. Then blasted it with my Martha Stewart heat gun.
I also added a K&Co. seed packet, some ribbon, a mini wooden clothes pin, and the sentiment was printed out from MS Word, but I originally got it from a Melissa Frances rub-on transfer. I also used papers by The Girls Paperie and my Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch. I handmade the button using the same paper and a clear button.
Don't forget the random winner of this week's challenge will receive a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Super Store!

And we also have a special Kids challenge ongoing at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! It is for children ages 2-16! The theme is Anything Goes! So get those kiddies crafting! There is a $50 credit voucher up for grabs for them too! It runs until April 30th!

Have a wonderful day!
